Validation of Electrical Cardiometry Versus Fick Method in Cardiac Output Measurement
This trial has been completed.
|Sponsor||Massachusetts General Hospital|
|Start date||March 2012|
|End date||October 2015|
|Trial size||30 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01568619, AESCULON|
The investigators would like to find out if AESCULON®, a new device that non-invasively and continuously measures cardiac output using electrical cardiometry, works as well as one existing method--Fick method in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary exercise testing.
difference in CO measurements with two methods
time frame: two weeks after finishing the exercise test
All participants at least 18 years old.
- Age >= 18 yd;
- Level 3 cardiopulmonary exercise testing.
- Proven or suspected disease involving severe aortic regurgitation;
- Implanted with a rate-responsive cardiac pacemaker;
- Pneumothorax or pleural effusion;
- Skin lesion(s) at the place where the electrode is supposed to be applied;
- Allergic to adhesive of ECG electrodes.
